Wild Heaven Bottles Hit!

Seems there has been a lot of anticipation for the first bottles of Wild Heaven's craft beers to hit the metro-Atlanta market. In case you haven't heard, Wild Heaven is the brain child of Georgia's own Nick Purdy, founding publisher of Paste magazine, and Eric Johnson, a brewer and founder of Trappeeze Pub in Athens.

While the Wild Heaven beers have been readily available on tap at local watering holes since fall 2010, the first bottles, Invocation a Belgian ale, and Ode to Mercy an Imperial brown ale, became available for purchase around metro-Atlanta last week. I got my first 4 packs at Ale Yeah, Decatur's ultra-cool craft beer shop.

The Invocation is a Belgian-styled golden ale that is bursting with complex herbal and earthy flavors. It's a beer-drinkers beer; a serious ale that leaves a lasting impression on the palate. At 8.5% alcohol, it packs a bit of punch, too.

Another cool thing about Wild Heaven for Decaturites is that they will be setting up their brewery in Decatur, GA. It is poised to open in 2013. This is a welcome addition to the growing community of craft beer enthusiasts in the Decatur area.

Do yourself a favor and don't be like this guy... ...go get some Wild Heaven and drink a real beer.

The likelihood of calling an alcohol helpline decreases when you and your friends are all responsible drinkers.
